Heart Aches...

(an oldie but a goodie - art journal page - Jan.2008)

My heart is just aching today...

I wish we could just go and scoop every last one of them up and bring them to safety.

Make them feel loved.

Give them hope.

Who am I to despair,

when my life is so perfectly okay today?

The only answer that feels adequate

to the millions of buzzing questions that fill my head,

as I try to figure out what to do with the "bad" stuff,

is

love.

It is what gets me through...

It is my noun and verb today...

It is the answer to my every question...

love...

I will keep breathing love...

because that is what I know for sure...


Love to you, Beautiful Ones...

It does seem like too much Kim...too much for one group of people to endure, but love is most certainly the answera and comes in so many forms...so keep loving and supporting!

If we all could love each other...how would the world be then? Peaceful? Harmonious? Caring? I would love to see it that is for sure.

Love the song Kim, its like a mantra going through my head today. All I can do is keep breathing, but then there is so much more, sharing the love in our hearts is just what we do.
